Match result market
Liverpool may have suffered an uncharacteristic dip in form earlier this year but they look like they’re back on the right track now. They are unbeaten in four in the league and have won three of those, including a long-awaited 2-1 win at Anfield earlier this month. Newcastle have enjoyed a slight upturn in fortunes but they have still lost three of their last five away from home and a Liverpool win looks the best shout here.
Chelsea are surprisingly heavy favourites considering West Ham’s fantastic campaign and we recommend backing against the Blues with a West Ham double chance here. David Moyes’s overperforming Hammers are unbeaten at home since January and have lost just three home league games all season, while Thomas Tuchel will undoubtedly have one eye on their trip to Real Madrid next week.
Sheffield United’s relegation is confirmed and nobody can say they don’t deserve it. They have failed to score in eight of their last ten league matches and lost nine of those. Brighton aren’t exactly setting the league alight but Graham Potter’s side have been playing some attractive football this term and can get a result at Brammal Lane. Take the Seagulls to win.
Both teams to score market
A big part of Liverpools downfall this term has been down to their defensive woes. Injuries have wreaked havoc on their back line and the result is just one clean sheet in their last ten top-flight matches at Anfield. A Liverpool win and both teams to score has landed in three of their last four league meetings with Newcastle so back goals at both ends again.
Chelsea may be a defensive juggernaut under Tuchel but they’re facing a West Ham side with a thirst for goals on Saturday. There have been goals at both ends each of their last four games and in six of their last eight and with Chelsea conceding in three of their last six competitive games we’re opting for both teams to score again.
It’s been difficult to justify a Sheffield United goal all season and this weekend is no exception. The Blades have failed to score in eight of their last ten and with Brighton keeping three clean sheets in their last four it’s an obvious pick to take both teams not to score.
Six goals in their last three league games suggests Liverpool are back to scoring form, and with Newcastle’s last four matches producing 15 goals it’s clear where this is heading. Over 2.5 goals is the choice.
We’re sticking with the over 2.5 goals shout at the London Stadium as well. West Ham have seen even more goalmouth action than Newcastle of late with their last four outings featuring an incredible 21 goals. None of these have seen fewer than five goals, but with Chelsea’s defensive stature taking a safer route is preferred.
Sheffield United and Brighton have scored 50 goals between them this season. That’s 50 goals in a combined 64 matches. Under 2.5 goals all the way.
Sadio Mane may have broken his duck at Leeds but the smart money still lies with Mohamed Salah. Liverpool’s talismanic attacker has scored in three of his five appearances since the international break and 11 of his 19 Premier League goals have opened Liverpool’s scoring. Back Salah to score first.
Jesse Lingard is currently the most in-form attacker in the Premier League and he’s showing no sign of slowing down. The Manchester United loanee has scored nine goals in his ten appearances for West Ham and has scored in each of his last five outings for them. Jesse Lingard to score anytime is the tip.
The goalscorer markets in Sheffield United vs Brighton should be avoided. Neither team are finding the net with regularity and the top scorer for Brighton is Neal Maupay, who has one goal in his last 14 matches.
The odds in the shots market for Liverpool players look unfathomably short so we’re looking towards the resurgent Magpies here. Allan Saint-Maximin was Newcastle’s saviour against Burnley and tested the keeper twice against West Ham. He has hit the target six times in his last five appearances so taking Saint-Maximin 1+ shot on target is a good choice.
It’s Lingard time again. The in-form attacker has only failed to hit the target in one of his Premier League appearances for West Ham, clocking up 18 shots on target in those ten games. He looks good value in both the 1+ and 2+ shots on target markets, but we’re taking Lingard 1+ shot on target.
Again, Bramall Lane’s offering is best avoided. Brighton and Sheffield United have averaged a combined 6.6 shots on target per game this season and the odds for Brighton’s attackers are far too short.
